Canon has posted and updated version of the EOS movie plug-in for Apple’s Final Cut Pro video editing application. The updated plug-in works with the EOS-1D Mark IV, EOS 5D Mark II, EOS 7D and EOS 60D according to the Canon information, and I wonder if the old ‘workarounds’ will let the plug-in also work with the EOS 550D and EOS 600D too? The key feature of the updated EOS Movie plug-in E1 is it’s flexibility to import movies that are no longer in the same directory structure as when put on the memory card by the camera.
To download the plug-in please visit Canon USA’s website and go to the EOS 5D Mark II page and then choose the software and drivers, and make sure to select Mac OS-X as your operating system. This link will get you most of the way there, you just need to choose the MAC OS-X operating system to get the plug-in. Once you have downloaded and installed the plug-in it is accessed from Log and transfer under the File menu.
